Relaxed Ride Handlebars

These relaxed fit alloy handlebars are love at first ride. Swept enough for that desired upright ride, yet comfortable enough for all day riding regardless of the destination. As seen on our 2017 and newer Franklin & Bedford models.

*Handlebars are sold by themselves- grips, shifter, brakes, etc. are not included. Professional installation recommended.

Looks great on my Driggs!

I customized my Driggs 3 with these and couldn't be happier. I think the look is much nicer than the extreme swept-back curves on the stock handlebars (although it's just down to personal taste). It does mean that the grips are a little farther forward, but I found it easy to compensate by just raising the handlebars a little more (since the fork is angled, lifting them up also means they go back.)

Make sure you get the cables shortened to match or it will look silly.

Thanks for sharing Ben. These handlebars are popular with those not acclimated to the European style sweep on our Driggs and Willow handlebars. Bike looks outstanding. -Ryan Zagata

Rebekah P Duncan (Vernon Hills, US)

I originally had swept back handle bars on my BBC but I didn't like how I had to ride extremely upright, and I didn't feel as though I had as much control. This year I switched to the Relaxed Ride Handlebars, and what a difference! I didn't install them myself, but it only cost me $20 to have a professional swap them out.

So glad to hear Rebekah. Thank you for sharing and I'm glad the handlebars worked for the better. Our swept back handlebars offer a very upright ride which is a unique experience for most riders. -Ryan Zagata

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
